Acculturation. The textbook discusses the process of acculturation. After viewing the film, Indian School: Stories of Survival, answer the following questions:
What is the definition of acculturation?
What happened to the Native American children in the film?
Why did the American government decide to acculturate them into Western culture?
How did this affect them long term?
Is acculturating others into another culture ever justified?
Cultural Relativism. Cultural relativism asserts that every culture has its own set of customs and beliefs, and that culture must be understood by the standards and values of the people within that culture. Anthropologists think that things that might seem cruel or irrational in our own culture must be seen through the lens of cultural relativity, and that all cultures have practices or beliefs that can be seen by others as repugnant or incomprehensible.
After reading the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights, explain whether you think that cultural relativism can coexist with the idea of universal human rights. Is it possible for anthropologists to promote human rights without imposing, for example, their own Western values and ideas of human rights?

Race and Identity. Historian Robin Kelley stated, “Race was never just a matter of how you look, it’s about how people assign meaning to how you look.” With that in mind:

How do racial categories shape our identities and social status?
Language, Status, and Identity. Anthropologists believe that language sends messages about who we are, where we come from, and with whom we associate. Based on the readings, can you explain how language can determine status? Provide specific examples that illustrate and support your point of view.
Locating Scholarly Sources. This assignment is intended to help you familiarize yourself with using the Ashford University Library for anthropological research, in preparation for your Final Research Paper. You will also become familiar with identifying the thesis statement in articles.
Similar to how different fields of study use distinct methodologies to collect data, each scholastic field also utilizes specific databases to locate scholarly articles. For this assignment, you will be locating articles and texts from a variety of databases that are all commonly used in anthropological research. In addition to being able to locate articles, it is very important to be able to identify the thesis statements of the articles or texts to make sure they will be useful in your research.
To begin, click on the “Article Selector” quiz in the left navigation menu of your online classroom. This will randomly assign you three articles, and provide you with the proper APA citation. After you have been assigned the articles, make sure to acknowledge that you have received each of these articles and click “submit.” You may want to write these down in a separate document, but you can also view these in your Grade
